George Groves Eager To Face Sierra on San Jose Bill

George Groves will return to the ring in the United States at the end of the month. The British and Commonwealth super-middleweight champion takes on Mexican Francisco Sierra in San Jose on the 28th of July on the undercard of the WBC welterweight title fight between Robert Guerrero and Selcuk Aydin.

A series of last-minute injuries have kept Groves idle since his victory over Paul Smith in November, and the unbeaten Londoner is desperate to get his career back on track.

"It is more relief than anything now that I finally have a date to box," Groves told his own website.

"It feels like a lifetime since I last fought and I need to make up for lost time seeing as I haven't managed one round of competitive fighting this year!

"Francisco Sierra is a very seasoned and tenacious fighter. He packs a punch and has a typical 'no holds barred' Mexican style. I can't wait to face this test, and finally show all the improvements I have made this year."

Sierra, the same age as Groves at 24, has been in with Edison Miranda during a 31-fight career featuring five defeats.
